Most likely the brake switch got knocked out of adjustment. It's down at the bottom of the steering column usually and under the dash and near where your feet would be when driving, so it is possible to kick it.
Let me double-check that though and be sure and if it is there you could remove it while leaving the wires hooked up and with nothing pressing in on the switch the brake lights should now be out.
Yes, that is where it is on the brake pedal bracket, here is the wiring diagram confirming that.
If you remove the switch and the brake lights are still on, either that switch is bad or there is a short circuit, so next would be to just disconnect the wires from the switch and if the brake lights go out now, it's a bad switch.
If it just needs adjusted,
Clearance between brake pedal stopper rubber and threaded end of switch should be 0.01-0.04". To adjust, loosen lock nut and turn switch body. After adjustment, tighten lock nut.
